I assume this will be available at Target as well, correct?

Yep. DPCI = 087-06-0194

And Mon Mothma?  Nice!  It even looks like they got the same actress that played her in REVENGE OF THE SITH.

According to EW, it is indeed the same actress.

I would think it's Emporer Palpatine by virtue of the Royal Guards standing sentry.

Yeah, those guards definitely suggest Palps is somewhere nearby.  Maybe that scene is in his DS1 private chambers or something...?

Yeah, all of this is very good - Death Star, hints of Vader and Palps, Star Destroyers, AT-ATs.  All very, very good.

Don't really care for the revisionist history of adding all these "specialty death troopers" to the OT era... it's just Stormies, Snowies, Sandies, and Biker Scouts, dammit!

I liked those Tank Trooper guys in that ground vehicle - those were pretty neat.  Can't wait to buy that toy...

Maz - clicky for a bigger pic. :)

Not really all that bummed that she is 5POA.  Elbows would have been nice, but she's got a really nice sculpt.  Love the way they did the goggles too - separate pieces glued into place.  Sure it would have been nice if they were moveable to raise them up, but it's waaaay better than what could have happened if they had made a different choice (#yellowpilotvisors).

A nice little surprise was waiting for me when I got home from work today, courtesy of our friends at Hasbro.  Click the picture to check out a larger version. :)

I'll try to crack it open and get some loose shots of Maz in a bit here...

Does that mean it'll be in stores too?

Yes, it will be in stores.  Yakface has pics of shelf tags at Kmart and it went up on Kmart.com already too.

I'm going to place my bet that next season will start with Rick telling Negan how his favorite gun is also named Lucille.  #problemsolved #BvS :D

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the writers themselves haven't fully committed to who's gonna die.  They're probably gathering polling data to see what would give the strongest response without hurting business.

And this really hamstrings them when it comes to promoting the next season.  You can't really show any making-of clips or on-set photos of any of the mains besides Rick, Carl, Carol and Morgan.

Agree with all of this. 

Such a dumb mistake to end on the easy "who's going to die" cliffhanger.  I fully expect next season to end with a "who shot JR Mr. Burns Rick" cliffhanger.

Would have been much more impactful IMHO to kill the person and let it stew all summer wondering what was going to happen next...

That 2006 version of E1 Obi-Wan came with the 2012 Trade Fed MTT, but that one was in a bubble type thing and not a baggie...  can't recall another time they used that particular kitbash of E1 Obi-Wan.

Happy to have the Han, but hope we get the regular version in this form soon too.

I said it before somewhere, but I'll say it again - I really, really want to see a lot of Han in this year's Walmart 3.75" line.   Would have liked VOTC Han or BEspin Han instead of Endor Han, but oh well.  TFA Starkiller Han is a great second Han for the line but I'd still love the Freighter Han in this SA line too.

Yes, I know that's a lot of Han for a line, but I'm going to be greedy here because we all know the chances of Ep8 or Ep9 Han figures are, well...  :'(

I'm fine if they skip an SA 3.75" TFA Luke for now and wait until the Episode 8 line to do him up nicely... not like he did a whole lot in the movie anyway. :P

Remind me who owns new Indiana Jones movies these days.

All Disney at this point for Indy 5 (and beyond).

Link ->Disney Takes Control of 'Indiana Jones' Franchise for Future Films

"Disney and Paramount have reached an agreement for the future of the Indiana Jones franchise, giving Disney control over all future films.

Paramount retains rights to the first four films and "will receive a financial participation on any future films that are produced and released," says the statement from the studios."

OFFICIAL!

FROM DISNEY:
Spielberg and Ford Reunite as Indiana Jones Returns to Theaters July 19, 2019

Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

I'm kinda bummed Leia got a slot, simply because she's a figure I'd be perfectly happy with 5POA...

Same here.  Loving Starkiller Base Han (assuming it's legit, of course).  Phasma is nice.  Leia... coulda been 5POA with that dress.  Oh well...

Justin, any sightings of the Spidey wave (Absorbing man)? I have not seen a trace of this wave anywhere.

The new Blaine Walmart (35W/Lexington) has had a few cases come and go.  I think they still have a few left on the pegs (along with a bunch of Rhino and Allfather waves). 

Pretty sure Beetle, Speed Demon, Pumpkinhead Guy, and some Spideys were left - Spider-Gwen disappears fast...
